Changing a cap and rotor on 2001 Chevy Astro

My 2001 Chevy Astro will crank but not start. I've had to replace thecap and rotor by a garage twice before and seems to be doing the same thing. Since it is at home and won't start, I prefer to avoid a tow to the garage so I need to know how to replace the cap, rotor and check the coil.

Pull off the center console inside the van to expose the engine. the distributor will be right in front of you. remove 2 screws from the cap, and make sure you get the wires on in the exact order you remove them, or else it wont start. rotor is underneath cap, and i believe the coil is right there on the cap.

My 1986 chevy van g20 cranks but wont start no fire replaced cap,rotor and coil .


I would suggest changing the pickup in the bottom of the distributor. Also crank the engine with the cap off of the distributor and make sure that the rotor bug is turning and make sure there is 12v at the coil with the key on.

I would check the rotor very carefully. They tend to burn a hole through the plastic under the center tab. It's hard to see sometimes. The spark follows that path instead of to the wire terminals. You may just want to try a new distributor cap and rotor.

HOW DO YOU INSTALL A CRANK POSITION SENSOR 1999 CHEVY ASTRO VAN 4.3 LTR MOTOR


The crank sensor is inside the distributor and may also be called an HEI pickup.
Disconnect wiring harness and remove the two tork head screws and lift out. Now would be a good time to replace the rotor & distributor cap if you haven't done so lately.
I hope this helps.

The distributor cap probably needs replacing. They are notorious for failing just by their design. Problem is the dealers no longer carry them so you will get an after market unit from a local auto parts dealer. Make sure it has a life time replacement as the after market units fail more often than your original GM part
